Wow, you guys are too kind! You really make someone feel at home in this community, and thanks for cleaning up my mess. I'll be sure to use Imgur for large pictures and now I can do spoilers, woohoo! I see what you mean SpaceEngineer, about warming up icy worlds warm enough for liquid water. You would liquify the existing topography lol. We would have to change the physical laws of nature to ever create things like in my OP photo.
Great images of Venus changing into an Earth-like world Watsisname
. First being able to see through the clouds, then watching color emerge onto the landscape. I wonder if that is cyanobacteria specifically shown, as many suggest that is the way to terraform Venus. The final version is breath taking, and such realistic looking details I almost imagine it spinning, even if it would be backwards. It seems like I can make out the shape of the Alpha Islands, Ovda & Thetis on the Aphrodite Terra, all familiar to me but seen in a new light like this is so cool!
I was so inspired I had to make this gif of Venus rotating using a drawing I made long ago.
I reskinned Venus in that really weak and outdated program Celestia, but only because it was easy.
